    • Nose
      90 90
      Very fruity, tropical, ripe mango, peach, dried apricot, pineapple, fruit cake, some sweet ripe apple, coconut and lemon zest at the back, also a clear nutmeg like wood note (slightly dusty).
    • Taste
      90 90
      Oily, syrupy fruitiness, mango, peach, honey, some pineapple, more of a bitter citrus, a somewhat peppery alcohol bite, nutmeg, slight ginger.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium to long: sweet syrupy fruit notes and honey, which are soon overpowered by spicy peppery wood. A tad dry.

    The high abv is well integrated and you don't feel the punchiness, it's very close to a fruit bomb balanced with good sweetness - pretty drinkable and enjoyable
    • Nose
      90 90
      Honey, pineapple, apple, mango, little apricot, lemon peel, dry hay, hints of vanilla, overripe fruits, whiffs of solvent - really not bad
    • Taste
      91 91
      Oily, creamy, sirupy, good sweetness, fruity, more tropical fruits, jam, honey, vanilla, spices - pretty good
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long, burning, more punchy, still fruity and good sweetness

  4. OJK scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Deep tropical fruit and whipped cream on the nose, oily and unctuous on the palate delivering more tropical fruit and vanilla cream, and a refreshing eucalyptus wave on the finish. Seductive and impressive dram!

    This was the 4th dram in a line-up of 6 Archives whiskies.

      This draws immediate attention: Bullseye alert! This is an excellent fruit basket. Mature, complex. This is just right. As correctly put by Cask1988, this is a typical old school whisky.
    • Taste
      90 90
      What started off right in the nose, continues in the taste. Mild spices, again the tropical fruit. Everything well balanced. This was a pretty good "hoggie".
    • Finish
      90 90
      The quality mentioned is also there in the finish. Long very warm and pleasant.

      Conclusion: just a big wow.

  6. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Part of an 6 sample Archives line up I did with friends. You recognize quality when it’s in your glass. Excellent whisky! One of us got the goosebumps while nosing this whisky, I guess that says enough.
    • Nose
      Lovely nose! How about a classic, old style, musty, dusty nose. They just can’t make ‘em like this anymore. Canned tropical fruits all over the place. Juicy, syrupy and mature. Mango, peach, sweet apples and several citrus fruits. A good amount of freshness giving minty and peppermint kind of flavors. Complex, deep and rich. There’s a great wow factor in this nose, Sensational dram!
    • Taste
      Oily & juicy. Lovely stuff! Aged harmony is the word here. Again loads of tropical fruits as well as again minty freshness. Ripe pear and vanilla cookies. A very wel matured Burgie! It never acts aggressive of restless.
    • Finish
      This long finish is fantastic! Vanilla soaked oak (didn’t even know that was a thing, but hey let the fantasy roll). Again loads of tropical influences but this time in a spices jacket. Quite some licorice, caramel and cinnamon. After 45 minutes or so some fresh leather hints appear.

      Let’s try to find a bottle :)

    Quite an amazing Glenburgie! This whisky delivers truckloads of tropical fruits in the likes of mango, tinned peach, oranges, a syrupy sweetness and gummibears. Not overly complex, but very good at what it does; delivering a full-on fruit bomb.

      What a nose! Breathtaking ! A fruit basket, full of complexity and nuances. It definitely deserves the "Archive" label
    • Taste
      88 88
      Less harmonious than the nose. A slight excess (lack of balance) resulting from an explosion of hot spices
    • Finish
      89 89
      The sweetness of the fruits somewhat soothes the excess spices. It's always very "warm" but with more gluttony
